Cooking classes for the soul


One of Cincinnati's most renowned soul food experts is ready to pass on her kitchen secrets.

Katrina Mincy plans to begin teaching cooking classes by early March at the Werk Mansion in Westwood.

Calling it Aunt Flora's Southern Soul Cooking School and Inn, Mincy, 58, says she will also host overnight guests at the mansion and have facilities to accommodate up to 60 guests for private dining functions. She and her husband, Ron, bought the century-old building several years ago.

Mincy owns and operates Aunt Flora's Cobbler House at Findlay Market in Over-the-Rhine. She prepared one of her famous pies on Martha Stewart's TV show last year.
Mincy is already accepting reservations for cooking classes and rooms at her inn. Information: www.auntflora.com.

Her macaroni and cheese is sinfully delicious. So rich, so creamy, so cheesy! It's the ideal comfort food. I challenge anyone to resist it!!!!

She catered a party that I once attended. Her cobblers are fantastic.

I really want to try the veggie cobbler. I envision something rich and delicious, pretty much negating the health benefits of the vegetables. Like a potpie but not... Anybody every try it?
